Quilt-Along Bonus Block: Christmas Ornaments

For those following along with our Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along, you might have noticed that I neglected to assign myself a date. Duh!!

Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along and Super Deals for Quilters

So, I created a bonus block called Christmas Ornaments and I’ve included instructions on making it into a mini quilt too. If you make the block/mini quilt, please share in the Flickr group… I’d love to see it.
